Bounce Pass


For a bounce pass, the ball should be held just like on the chest pass. The fingers should spread and should be behind the ball and the thumbs should come close to each other. The final touch at the release of the ball should be at the fingertips of the first fingers and the thumbs. The ball should bounce in front of you to make a pass. In this pass, one bounce is used to make a pass. The bounce should be a 2/3rd distance away from you and 1/3rd distance away from the receiver. This will make a perfect pass. This makes it easier for the receiver to receive the ball at her/his waist level.
It is possible to fake the opponents with the bounce pass and this pass could provide to a definite teammate. Sometimes when you are about to make a chest pass and the opponent team member obstructs in between then at such situations, this bounce pass is more effective. So, the opponent team member will be unable to stop it.

Activities
We can practice the bounce pass in a circle, triangle, lines, and rows. Here we will practice in roles and lines.The two rows should stand face to face to make the bounce pass. The first friend in the first row will give the bounce pass to the first friend in the second row and joins the row on the other side. In the same way, the friend on the other row gives the bounce pass to the friend in front and joins the line on the side of his row. The rows keep on shifting to the side. If the playing area is small then the side should be joined in an arch rather than in straight rows.


One hand pass

In basketball or football, if the ball has to be given a long pass then one hand pass is suitable. One hand could throw high and far to make a pass. One hand could pass the ball from below the waist level as well as overhead. When the passes are executed, we can pass according to our comfort.

Activities

It is better to stand much further apart to practice this one hand pass. Usually, bounce pass is used for shorter passes and one hand for longer passes.
